How do I create a student group assignment?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.
You can create a group assignment by using the Group Assignment checkbox. Canvas uses Group Sets to assign group assignments, and each Group within the Group Set will be required to complete the assignment.
You will need to assign a Group Set as part of the assignment. You can add an existing Group Set, or you can create a new Group Set as part of the assignment and add students to groups later.
Select Group Assignment
Click the This is a Group Assignment checkbox.
Assign Grades Individually
You can choose to assign grades to students individually by selecting the Assign grades to each student individually checkbox.
If this box is left unchecked, all the students in the group will receive the same grade.
